Lower Sac Report by Kevin Kay

Jason and Anne made a quick trip up from the Bay Area to fish the Lower Sac.  They wanted to do a half day so we decided to fish from around 3 until dark.  We had pretty steady action throughout the drift thanks to some big caddis hatches.  We've been catching more smallish fish lately, maybe the big boys are waiting for the salmon to show up so they can gorge themselves on eggs.  Keep an eye on our reports so you'll know when the salmon (hopefully!) arrive.

Project Healing Waters is a nationwide organization with many local chapters that focuses on exposing our veterans to the world of fly fishing.  We had the San Francisco chapter out on the Lower Sac for two days of fun.  We had seven boats and 14 anglers fishing the river on three different drifts, all the way from the Posse Grounds to Jellys Ferry.  Everyone caught some beautiful native Lower Sac rainbows while constantly needling each other and the guides. We have the capability to run large group trips, great for families, businesses, schools, whatever!  We'll make it happen.  And check out Project Healing Waters, they're a great bunch and worthy of a donation if you are so inclined.

Lower Sac Report by DJ Spivey

This past evening on the lower sac was nothing short of amazing! Lots of large caddis hatching in the late afternoon resulted in great shallow water fishing at the top of riffles and into the skinniest of water in the tailouts. Size 14 nymphs produced some electric grabs and very quality fish. With the great caddis hatch we also observed quite a few mayflies coming off. If your looking for some great evening fishing or even looking to test your dry fly skills a late afternoon is the float for you!
